Trillium Award Shortlists Announced

Gawd, if such good shortlists keep getting released, soon there'll be nothing left for me to grumble about. Just learned that both Jeramy Dodds' Crabwise to the Hounds and Adam Sol's Jeremiah, Ohio have made the shortlist for this year's Trillium Poetry Prize. For Jeramy, this represents a trifecta, since he's also up for the Gerald Lampert Award and the Griffin Prize, no less. And this after already scooping the Bronwen Wallace and CBC Literary awards. Crabwise appears to be a juggernaut of unstoppable force! I thought Adam Sol's book would be nominated for more than it has--it deserves to be--so I'm glad to see it hasn't been shut out altogether. This is his second Trillium nomination, if I'm not mistaken.
